This thread may have persuaded me to play DF again... we shall see later.

OT: Would Cavys be a good, slightly less deadly substitute for dogs? Nest boxes might end up being a little too much, but I haven't played DF much since they were introduced.

Cavies are grazers, although extremely small grazers.  They don't survive long enough to reproduce without grass.  Magma mist I'm not sure on.  It'd be easy to set up, and use of creative water logic could create a good timer for the water stop, magma mist, and water resume.  The science of burning innocent children could be perfected into clockwork.

Brb, Going to hospital because I can no longer breath.


EDIT: But seriously, what about storing booze down there as the mist hits? The explosion could be powerful enough to burn the whole body, but weak enough not to completely kill them?

Booze does not explode.  It boils.  And as one person said, about the burning of goblins: "It will not burn them.  It will lightly simmer them in a refreshing mist that leaves them pleasantly smelling of wine."

Now I want my Sociopathic, Skinless, Deformed, Aggressive and Nigh Unbeatable Super Soldiers to smell faintly of Strawberry Wine. Is that too much to ask?

Perhaps the waterfall mist can also extinguish the burning child after he's done being melted?

I'm still against the water pool idea.  Not to mention that booze may be needed to stabilize mood.

as I suggested before, kill his parents in front of him and then allow him to recover for a bit before doing this.  He'll be so apathetic he won't care about anything.

He'll get apathetic from killing hundreds and hundreds of fox cubs. Killing his parents won't be useful if they're legendary hammerdwarfs.

The most amazing thing is that even after spending 12 years in a chamber of utter terror the kids will still remember who their parents are at all.
